About this deal
The dulling of your blades - the more friction, the faster your blades become dull and need resharpening It is not exactly like ice. It takes a little bit to get used to it. But synthetic ice is as close as you can get to ice skating anywhere (85 to 90% there). And it is great to practice specific points when you don't have access to an ice rink. Looking at the pictures online, it's natural to assume these “plastic” panels will end up in the trash before long.
This also reduces the shelf life of the tile, as you can’t flip it over to use itwhen it begins to wear away.Synthetic ice is primarily made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) plastic materials. The best synthetic ice products include a lubricant or slip agent infused into the plastic, which reduces friction and allows for smoother skating. How does synthetic ice compare to real ice in terms of skating experience? A surface that is too hard (not enough slip agent for example, or like older surfaces) will dull the blades very fast. The surface skating sounds may seem somewhat louder as multiple people stride and glide across the synthetic ice.
Often referred to as fake ice, plastic ice or artificial ice Its a misconception to believe that you can’t do the same things on synthetic ice that you can do on real ice.In the post below, I share with you my personal choice for the best synthetic ice as well as the other great options on the market.
